About this project

We are the project Change of Perspective of TIO e.V. and support and accompany girl and young women from 16 to 25 years in our work. Very different girls come to us with different life stories and ideas. We support the girls and young women with the following offers:

- Social counselling
- Support in the transition from school to work
- Open work with inclination-oriented offers
- Educational work

One of our most important cornerstones is educational work, because this is where the course for the future life of the grils and young women is often set. We welcome young women from the 10th grade upwards, who are in the middle school or high school graduation phase. So far, we supported the visitors here in all subjects, both when it comes to homework and preparation for exams or the final examination. We also want to teach independent learning, experience of different learning methods and scientific work. 

So far, we two social worker have been supported by 4 honorary lecturers, who covered the natural science subjects and intensive German lessons. In the main season (between mid-September and the end of May), we were able to provide individual and needs-oriented support for an average of 25 girls per day, 4 days a week, within the scope of our educational work. But in the field of enducation, the current fuding amount does not allow us to maintain our existing project in this quality. The honorary staff can no longer be financed by these funds, so that support in the nautral sciences and intensive German language training, which is very important for the majority of our visitiors, in no longer available. 

With our appeal for donations we want to implement the educational offer for the nautral sciences and German as a foreign langugage as an additional project in a change of perspective, so that the woman receive holistic support. The funds required for this amount are made up as follows: 4 honorary lecturers with 10 units per week, twice a week. The offer is to be valid for 38 calender weeks and covers a total of 1520 hours per year. With a cost contribution of 13,00€ per unit (1 unit = 45 minutes), a number of 1520 units per years would result in a total amount of 19.760,00€, which still has to be financed.

That´s why we need you!!!
